Re: Central Pain Syndrome
They did not find a bulging or herniated disc, but they did find caused from some type of irritation, or aggravation of the injured area in the mid-left side of my back/should area, an inflamed area that they have determined is a benign tumor. They say it is benign, but no biopsy has been ordered? They assure me it is not necessary. Having said all this, I am extremely distressed that with the level of chronic, persistent pain, and my severely diminished range of mobility and strength, will I ever be able to perform the heavy duties of my job again. Will it be possible to work at such a caregiver job, with central pain syndrome. I am doubtful and afraid they are forcing me back to a job that I can no longer perform. Does anyone know about advocacy or my long term prognosis so I can protect my own best interests?
